Our condolences go to Carol and family with Art’s passing away at age 86
Art was one of 5 children. He and his older brother made ice in Mentmore, Manitoba.
Art’s first curling prize was a coffee pot when he was 14.
In 1986 he returned to curling by joining the mens league twice a week and an active curler in the Hang Over league. At the age of 55 he also joined the seniors curling. He only missed one year in 1993 because of health issues.
In Art’s years of curling, he had 3 – eight enders
He travelled all over competing in bonspiels. He went to Las Vegas with Eileen Swanson’s team. Also curled in Victoria, Vancouver, Powell River and Seattle.
Art was given a life time membership at the Campbell River Curling Club. In return he bought the first office computer and its replacement.
A celebration of life will be held at the Legion on Nov.23 at 2 pm.
